Jackson, MS –– Joe Nosef, Chairman of the Mississippi Republican Party, issued the following statement on the outcome of tonight’s primary runoff election:
“We congratulate Senator Cochran and his staff on his runoff victory tonight and also thank him for his constant, unwavering public service to our state when we needed help the most. We know he will continue to serve Mississippi in the same honorable and reliable manner in the coming years.

Senator McDaniel, his staff and supporters ran an extremely organized, well-funded and hard-fought campaign. His future in the Republican Party is bright both as a State Senator and beyond.

We must all recover quickly from this tough campaign and then turn our focus toward the Party unity necessary to carry us through re-electing Senator Cochran this November and sweeping the November statewide elections of 2015.”
